"Scaling Back" Hits Hockey Sites

01/20/2023 at 12:12pm EST

from J.J. from Kansas of Winging It In Motown,

I’m fewer than 30 minutes removed from learning via various channels that Vox Media, who owns SB Nation and this site took part in massive “scaling back” announcements. That means people losing their jobs and sites losing their financial support. About five minutes after that, I got an email that Winging it in Motown is among those sites.

So far what I have been told is that there is more information coming to help us plan for this transition and that they don’t intend to actually shutter WIIM. I currently don’t know what that means and I don’t know the direction I’ll choose to go when I do know more.



they don’t intend to actually shutter WIIM.

That's unfortunate, at least unless you are into sites with rumors and fake "sources".


Okay, how about ONE example of WIIM posting rumors and fake sources. Just one. 


Do me a favor and look up the times when they posted rumors and fake sources. And then post it here. 


JJ used to be a regular here.  Met him in Detroit at the first or second, or maybe both, Herm to Hockeytown events.


Sorry to hear about all this, J.J.  Maybe Paul has a corner of the site available for you?  :)


Not to disparage Kate in any way, but JJ does run a tight game blog...


It’s all good. J.J. is one of the 19. WIIM is widely read by many of us……😉

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
